The city-owned Portland, Maine golf course will officially open its South Course Clubhouse following a ribbon-cutting event, at which golfers can play nine holes at a reduced rate. The new structure features a pro shop, public restrooms and a function room, and the course will also offer a new app for smartphones, through which golfers can map the course, track scores, and order a snack off the golf course restaurant’s menu.
The city of Portland, Maine plans to officially open its new South Course Clubhouse at Riverside Golf Course on the morning of July 19, the Portland (Maine) Press Herald reported.
Nicole Clegg, the city’s spokeswoman, said the new clubhouse will feature a pro shop, public restrooms and a function room. The ribbon cutting, which was attended by Mayor Michael Brennan, was slated to begin at 10 a.m., the Press Herald reported.
To mark the event, Clegg said golfers would be able to play nine holes at a reduced rate. The public is invited, and refreshments will be served, the Press Herald reported.
The construction of a new clubhouse represents the latest effort by the city to improve the public’s golfing experience at Riverside. The city hired Nick Packard, a PGA professional, in May to oversee operations at the course, the Press Herald reported.
The course will feature a new app for smartphones that will allow the public to book tee times online, map the course, track scores, and even order a snack off the menu from Through The Woods, the golf course restaurant, the Press Herald reported.
The city-owned Riverside Golf Course opened in 1932, and was expanded to 18 holes in 1937. Today, Riverside features a nine-hole South Course and an 18-hole North Course, the Press Herald reported.
